Brisbane catch up

I have been practicing my FMQ on some items for In2quilting and this is a selection. Managed to get them all finished before flying off to some sunshine.... Qld and my DD2

Caught up with the lovely Michelle of Ragtagstitching... visit her blog if you want to see our smiling faces over a delicious Devonshire tea.Michelle took me to a huge warehouse full of fabrics and these few items whispered gently in my ear" buy me buy me"so I did. I am sure that the baby fabric will come in handy eventually.

Also treated myself to a magazine... withdrawal symptoms as I didn't get to stitch while I was away.

Think I gave a sneak peak) at this a while ago. I got this panel from Shabby Fabrics ( well I got 2 actually,hmm wonder why?)and mad it into a quilt for DD2. gave it to her as she was getting a 3 seater and 1 seater ( call it a chair) couch delivered while we were there. This was for her to curl under when she was in her chair. She loved it and it wasn't something she was expecting. 

Hope you can see some of the feathers that I quilted. Mine is under the machine for when I get some time to quilt it.

Had a wonderful time with all the folks I caught up with and thanks to Jetstar we actually got another 24 hours in the Sunshine state. Yes our flight was cancelled two hours prior to departure and the next available was the next evening. Good job we were at private accomodation, but I had to cancel work!
